Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filters

Rough vacuum pumps are an important part of the vacuum system on mass specs, however in many labs they are not given the attention they require except when a problem is discovered in the mass spec operation. For efficient and safe operation the correct filters and traps should be installed on both the inlet and outlet of the vacuum pump. With the advance of electrospray and other LC/MS techniques this requirement becomes even more important, as more solvents and other materials are being pumped. This is especially critical if the vacuum pumps are not exhausted outside of the lab. The use of the correct filters and traps and the proper maintenance of these items can improve the life of the vacuum pump as well as minimize harmful emissions into the environment. Below is a chart which may be helpful in determining which filters you may require. The following pages detail each of these items and list appropriate hardware to connect the filters to both Alcatel and Edwards vacuum pumps. If you have a vacuum pump from another manufacturer give us a call and we will help you determine which filters and hardware you may require.

    Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filter System from SIS SIS has recently introduced vacuum pump filter kits for the rough pumps on your MS systems. These systems are recommended for areas where it is not possible or practical to exhaust the MS vacuum pumps outside the building. The filter system consists of two layered filters. The first filter is an oil mist eliminator, which captures the heavy hydrocarbons from the vacuum pump exhaust and returns these oils back into the pump. The second stage of filtering

    Oil Mist Eliminators CV-0118-37H The Balston Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filter System Balston Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filters utilize Microfibre Filter Cartridges. The filter cartridges capture the fine oil droplets suspended in exhaust air, and cause the droplets to run together to form large drops within the depth of the filter cartridge. The large drops are then forced by the air flow to the downstream surface of the filter cartridge, from which the oil drains by gravity. This process is called "co
